I should add that in the past, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Sporadic at best. In this instance, however, the colours have refused to change, period. The specific areas I was trying to change were in the News section, and in the message bar titles, etc. The main content message areas seems to work fine, at least on this particular site. I can change them by going into the css directly and creating a new custom rule but I'm wondering why the wysiwyg isn't working.
It has done this to me on a previous site as well, not holding the new size or colour preferences. I had to manually change everything. The original css seems to override in specific instances, especially for colours, but also often for font size. I am a new Webassist customer and when the product(s) work(s), I like it(them), but there are a few quirks in both Theme-it and Powerstore3 that perhaps need that dot adjustment, and they seem to have to do in both products with how they are connecting/changing/not changing the existing css files. Thanks.
